In this groundbreaking career guide, Janet Katz gives a tour of the nursing profession and helps prospective students evaluate whether it’s right for them. Through personal anecdotes and interviews with women and men from a wide range of nursing specialties, Katz examines what it means to be a nurse and addresses the misconceptions that surround the profession. She introduces readers to the diverse career possibilities within nursing, such as working in a helicopter emergency unit, conducting scientific research, or providing home health care. Katz also offers practical advice on each step toward becoming a nurse, from choosing the right school to finding your first job to managing on-the-job stress.

“Janet Katz’s writing is direct, practical, and conversational. Her book will help readers explore nursing through the eyes of a mature, realistic professional. Katz outlines thoroughly the political, power, and human dynamics which make nursing a complex career choice. School and vocational counselors would do well to have Majoring in Nursing on their bookshelves.” – Peter Berner-Hays, Upper School Counselor, Lakeside School, Seattle
